Applicants must complete and return all required forms and credentials to the college
prior to registration. Students are encouraged to apply and complete their admissions
file well in advance of registration. Late applications may be considered only if
time permits. Delays in acceptance will occur if application materials are received
in several segments and/or if the applicant must be reminded to submit certain documents.
Students applying for admission to Lanier Technical College must be 16 years of
age or older. Applicants must be 17 years of age or older for admission into all Allied Health programs.
Lanier Technical College does not accept or recognize transcripts indicating a certificate
of performance, certificate of attendance, or special education diplomas.
A regular high school diploma or a High School Equivalency transcript such as the
GED, HiSet, or TASC is required as a prerequisite for entrance into diploma and degree programs, and for most certificate programs. See specific entrance requirements
for individual programs. The President of Lanier Technical College may grant a waiver
to the admissions requirement as it relates to possessing a GED or high school diploma
for those secondary students who are otherwise eligible to enroll in a program of
study that is agreed upon by the secondary school and Lanier Technical College.
This may apply to students seeking dual or joint enrollment in high school initiatives such as Move On When Ready with Lanier Technical College.
Applicants must be physically able to attend school. In some programs, a student
who has a physical condition that would limit participation in a class/lab should
provide a written statement from a doctor indicating the student's ability to perform
all class/lab requirements.
